What contractor companies have you utilized with the most success?
Staffing a part time side project that counts towards utilization at my firm. Unfortunately due to small budget cuts had to tell some of the part time staff who were contributing a few hours a week to the project that we would need them to step back from the project. Sent them an email immediately and thanked them for their time, and told them would love to work together again in the future. Is this fine or do I need to also meet with them to reassure them in a case like this?
What is the minimum utilization criteria followed at SDC?
There are people from my team with utilization in range of 30% to 50% and got promoted to manager 1 and sa2 respectively.
I have almost 75% utilization, so wondering why work so much. Thinking of aiming for 55% utilization this time.
Promoted to SSE with 25% hike and VP as 9% . I had received ACE award in Q3 . I have also maintained utilization report 100% still I got less VP. Can I ask manager to revisit the component

Hi! I’m doing some research on employee benefits (medical insurance, 401k, HSA/FSA, commuter benefits) and was hoping to connect with People specialists or HR professionals in the comp & benefits space.

A previous employer reached out and offered me a Senior Product Designer role with a 40% increase base salary. I am considering this, as I have been feeling under utilized at my current role + dealing with of uncertainty lately. But I would be forfeiting a lot of RSUs if I leave. I am in the middle of my vesting period (2/4 yrs), and this year alone would have 256 shares vesting (~$500 share price). The new role will come with shares, but at a small share price. Anyone had similar experience?
Poll Question: which consultant would you rather staff or hire and why?

B. Consultant who has worked with 8 different clients over two years, above target utilization.
I got laid off with no warning. Reason given was my utilization was low at 81.8%. No performance problems. Would it be inappropriate for me to apply back to PwC to the teams I discussed rolling onto?
Why isn't utilization part of your bonus? I get why it doesn't go towards performance...but if I'm charging 100% for the year that means I making the company a lot of money! Hook it up!!
Why does Deloitte penalize its employees for paid time off? Is it fair that the denominator of our utilization doesn't account for PTO?
How is everyone staying motivated at work while going through fertility treatments? On days when I have appts or get my period, all I want to do is google and read forums about it. My utilization is tanking (not because I’m blowing off work, but because I need to find and take on new work) but can’t get the energy to). I’ve told my manager about what I’m going through and she is supportive, but feeling guilty when I hear about how busy everyone around me is and I just can’t find the motivation.
Does having higher Standard Utilization helps in annual performance/promotions?
I am currently having 108% but unsure about how it will help me.
Genuine answers please :)

Deloitte I have been on my current project since September 2020, and am feeling some burn out. My current contract ends at the end of this month.

The last of us 2 is obviously an important game, culturally. I loved the storyline, contrary to popular opinion. It has a lot of representation with characters from various sexual orientations and races, and yet, no representation for south East Asians. How come we are almost always missing in video games? Not complaining, don’t care as much...but I am curious.
